Holidays 2016 & New Year 2017 // Florida Wedding Videographer

Happy Holidays 2016 & Happy New Year 2017!

Happy Holidays & Happy New Year from Kemari Lyn Films!
Here's a recap of what Jacob and I did for our holidays in 2016.

Jacob and I have family in the Orlando and Tampa, Florida area. So come holiday season, that's typically where you'll find us. We love being able to see all of our loved ones and this time of year allows us to do this! Our first visit was to see my dad's side of the at Runaway Bay Lodge. There are so many relaxing and fun things to do while at Runaway Bay. While we were there with my dad, we spent time relaxing, painting, zip lining, cooking and eating, playing games, and of course, exchanging gifts for Christmas. We always have a good time with my dad and are thankful for the time we get to spend with them. πŸ’•
{psstt...there's more to the story after the video.}

Take a look at our "A Day in the Life at Runaway Bay" video here! 

Our next stop was to visit my mom and family in Orlando. I love visiting this area and seeing my mom again. She and I have gotten so close, and I love her a lot hehe. πŸ’• After we arrived, we helped a little with what we could for my mom's Christmas Eve party. She cooked a ton of yummy food and we all had a great time! The next morning, we woke up and exchanged gifts. We go around in a circle and open gifts one by one so everyone can see. Also as a side note, my cousin was able to spend this holiday with us, and it truly meant a lot to have him there. We hadn't seen him in a while, and it just seemed like the good ol' days when he was there with us. πŸ˜„ Any-who, so Christmas was great and we pretty much spent the entire rest of the day playing Spades with my mom and stepdad haha. We don't play cards really with anyone in Tallahassee, so we definitely play it up when we visit my mom! β™ οΈοΈ Jacob and I lost most of the time...BUT we did get a few winning matches haha. We were so happy when we finally took down my mom and Will and won! This was a glorious moment for us seeing as we almost always lost to them. πŸ˜‰ So after a couple days of hanging out, playing Spades, and watching Batman vs. Superman and Elf (lol), we headed over to Tampa to visit Jacob's side of the family. 

Here's an iPhone shot of my mom's beautiful Christmas tree! Isn't it gorgeous?! We spent most Christmas day and a few days afterwards with my sweet mama, stepfather, and younger sisters. We also had a fun Christmas Eve party with some more of our family members!

Tampa time! Jacob and I have got a large amount of family members to visit when we're here. We made sure to spend some quality time with everyone including some of Jacob's friends from high school. One of our first days is Tampa was spent at Busch Gardens! Woo! Jacob and I love theme parks and I'm a huge rollercoaster fan, so we had a blast! We rode Cobra's Curse for the first time (it just opened earlier that year and it was a pretty cool ride! It takes you up on an elevator like system while you're in the coaster cart, and then you spin around while the coaster is moving. Kinda crazy, but fun!) Our 2016 year end passes were just a few days shy of expiring, so we made a point of going one last time haha. πŸ˜‰ Anyway, so after Busch Gardens we spent most of our time visiting and eating out with friends and family members. It was a great time to relax and make spend time with those we love. Cue New Years Eve! πŸŽ† For NYE, we hung out with at my father-in-law's house and rung in the new year with my brother-in-laws and their sweet ladies. β€οΈοΈ I love them and I love those girls! This is how we rung in 2016 and again for 2017. We ate some yummy food, drank some wine, watched the ball drop, and set off some itty bitty fireworks haha. It was definitely a fun time! 

Check out one of our still frame grabs from our last wedding of 2016! Sparkler exits are so fun and remind me of how we ring in the new year! So...
